Most accustomed to welcoming groups of soccer fans for its English Premier League showings, Brit's Pub was filled with quite a different crowd Saturday morning.

The British-themed, downtown Minneapolis bar was the obvious choice for fans of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to catch the Royal Wedding.

Pictures show the pub was filled with customers even from 5 a.m., when Brit's opened its doors for live coverage of the nuptials from London.

By 5:10 a.m., the bar said it was standing room only inside, with fans later packing its upstairs veranda.

Some in attendance dressed up for the occasion, complete with hats and fascinators, and they wouldn't have looked out of place at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel.
